Lombardi: The next generation

Published May 31, 2013

At a recent media day golf outing to promote the Lombardi Golf Classic, it became readily apparent to me that the charity event is preparing strategically for the next generation.

When you're approached by the homeless

Published Feb. 1, 2013

I'm going to be honest. As a short-ish, out-of-shape female with comically weak upper arms, I keep walking. I don't know this person, I don't know what they want, I'm alone, I'm caught off-guard, I don't want to get myself into a situation I'll regret. And so I quicken my step and walk past. And afterward, I really hate myself for it.
